As we drift through this city, mere barnacles on the container ship of consciousness, it’s sometimes advisable to shout at that captain up top (oi oi) and get him to moor up.
Taking your time, relaxing: docking up at The Rib Room.
A HQ for good time Gertrude’s and red trouser wearing Derricks, the venue boasts London’s widest variety of gins and bitters and devious cocktail menu designed only for sophisticated sipping.
With a matrix of 19 different kinds of gins (Martin Miller’s Westbourne Strength, Fifty Pounds and Jensen Bermondsey Gin) and 10 bespoke artesian bitters, the maths says there’s a possible 190 combinations for you to try. Making it an ideal pit-stop for thirsty Knightsbridge shoppers!
At the pinnacle of supreme service, the team have been awarded three AA Rosettes to celebrate their culinary mastery and general goodness, so rest assured your visit will be no less than sublime.
All that gin leave you feeling carnivorous? Thought so. Luckily The Rib Room (the clues in the name) have an array of meaty treats on hand, with the latest being a Monty Python inspired burger – The Cleeseburger – playing homage to John Cleese’s comedy genius.
Lover of a gag the football-mad mixologists have sunk their teeth into a new cocktail idea: The Suarez. This vodka cocktail will give a real kick with ingredients including beef bouillon, Worcestershire sauce and a dash of fiery Tabasco. Owch!
Climb aboard. Throw the anchor. This is a gin expedition to send you starboard.
